    Going by what is in the Bible, what has the Devil done that is so horrible?

    God destroyed almost every living creature on earth
    God killed the first born children of Egypt

    What has the Devil done of that magnitude ?

    the happy is the Almighty is in charge, evil is not permitted to advance to the Everlasting that is not to say right or wrong - just evil.

    * the desert religions are political theocracies, the only evil is within the person for whatever reason who is burdened by its presence and is required to be removed however it got there.

    I like toying with the idea that Lucifer is actually the good guy, and that humanity has been tricked into following and worshiping evil. It seems like something evil would do. You know, tricking stupid people into believing it is good. God seems to be a tantrum throwing narcissist, while Lucifer just wanted to give knowledge and freedom to humanity.

    What if the Bible were written from the perspective of the Devil?

    Documenting the attrocities done by God and getting people to fear him. It is God tricking people’s minds to get them to do his bidding.

    It is God who sends you to Hell, not the Devil

    I am far from a Bible expert

    I am well aware of stories of horrors done by God
    Can anyone provide a Bible story of a horror the Devil inflicted on mankind?

    That’s OT ‘god,’ when he was young, stupid, and foolish and did bad things.
